BAI Frees Haitian Political Prisoner

The Haitian political prisoner Jean Robert Vincent was freed on December 30, 2014 after 29 months in detention in Haiti. Vincent was arrested on July 27, 2012 while leaving the BAI office in Port-au-Prince. He was accused of conspiracy against the security of the state. BAI has been fighting his case since that time. The day after Vincent’s BAI attorney was able to argue his case in court, he was finally released.
